Jolien D'hoore (Wiggle High5): “This victory means a lot to me. It's the last race of the year and it's World Tour. I won it last year and I wanted to repeat it. But it's never easy. I'm really happy to pull it off. The first half of the race I stayed with Julie Leth, she protected me. I could stay out of the wind and save a lot of energy. I received the help of my other teammates in the end and specially Emilia Fahlin, she stayed with me the whole last lap. She put me in a great position in the end.”
